The real victim here is Nicki Manaj's cousin's friend.

That dude is really regretting that the world knows he has swollen testicles. 

And what girl is gonna call of a damn wedding because the dude's testicles swelled up? Thinking he dodged a bullet if that's true. And I'm skeptical on that. 

Maybe he had blue balls

Guy gets swollen balls from an STD. Either from cheating or from soon to be wife. Super famous cousin tweets that he got swollen balls from the COVID shot. Intelligent people put two and two together.

Probably true. I don't have much STD experience but I trust your opinion. ... :ph34r:

There are cultists everywhere, including on the vaccine advisory committee to the FDA. It will take time to root out and purge these lunatics from our society and until we do, the damage they will cause in the interim will be immense.

You mean 2021 but good to know

fixed, but yes. 

I'd note that they aren't counting fully vaccinated until 2 weeks after the final dose. but 99% of deaths were among those who either were unvaccinated or not completely vaccinated.

Looks like the increase in new cases has leveled out.

Pretty much sums it up for the clear thinking majority:

Just had a chronic heroin user tell me they were "waiting on the evidence before (they) get experimental junk injected into their body. "

How's everyone else's day going?

That's a really good question.  Every day there's a new one that dies.  Does every town have it's own personal group of local right wing radio hosts?  Which begs the question, why is that in any way necessary?  And are there people who listen to 2 or 3 local talk radio hosts, then go home at night and watch Laura Ingram, Hannity and Tucker?  Is it possible that that's someone's life?

If you want to make sense of the number of COVID hospitalizations at any given time, you need to know how sick each patient actually is. Until now, that’s been almost impossible to suss out. The federal government requires hospitals to report every patient who tests positive for COVID, yet the overall tallies of COVID hospitalizations, made available on various state and federal dashboards and widely reported on by the media, do not differentiate based on severity of illness. Some patients need extensive medical intervention, such as getting intubated. Others require supplemental oxygen or administration of the steroid dexamethasone. But there are many COVID patients in the hospital with fairly mild symptoms, too, who have been admitted for further observation on account of their comorbidities, or because they reported feeling short of breath. Another portion of the patients in this tally are in the hospital for something unrelated to COVID, and discovered that they were infected only because they were tested upon admission. How many patients fall into each category has been a topic of much speculation. In August, researchers from Harvard Medical School, Tufts Medical Center, and the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System decided to find out.

Researchers have tried to get at similar questions before. For two separate studies published in May, doctors in California read through several hundred charts of pediatric patients, one by one, to figure out why, exactly, each COVID-positive child had been admitted to the hospital. Did they need treatment for COVID, or was there some other reason for admission, like cancer treatment or a psychiatric episode, and the COVID diagnosis was merely incidental? According to the researchers, 40 to 45 percent of the hospitalizations that they examined were for patients in the latter group.

 

The authors of the paper out this week took a different tack to answer a similar question, this time for adults. Instead of meticulously looking at why a few hundred patients were admitted to a pair of hospitals, they analyzed the electronic records for nearly 50,000 COVID hospital admissions at the more than 100 VA hospitals across the country. Then they checked to see whether each patient required supplemental oxygen or had a blood oxygen level below 94 percent. (The latter criterion is based on the National Institutes of Health definition of "severe COVID.”) If either of these conditions was met, the authors classified that patient as having moderate to severe disease; otherwise, the case was considered mild or asymptomatic.

The study found that from March 2020 through early January 2021—before vaccination was widespread, and before the Delta variant had arrived—the proportion of patients with mild or asymptomatic disease was 36 percent. From mid-January through the end of June 2021, however, that number rose to 48 percent. In other words, the study suggests that roughly half of all the hospitalized patients showing up on COVID-data dashboards in 2021 may have been admitted for another reason entirely, or had only a mild presentation of disease.

This increase was even bigger for vaccinated hospital patients, of whom 57 percent had mild or asymptomatic disease. But unvaccinated patients have also been showing up with less severe symptoms, on average, than earlier in the pandemic: The study found that 45 percent of their cases were mild or asymptomatic since January 21. According to Shira Doron, an infectious-disease physician and hospital epidemiologist at Tufts Medical Center, in Boston, and one of the study’s co-authors, the latter finding may be explained by the fact that unvaccinated patients in the vaccine era tend to be a younger cohort who are less vulnerable to COVID and may be more likely to have been infected in the past.

Possible? How do you think Trump got elected? That's basically 40% of our country.

Do not think that the insane vocal communists in CVON represent the majority view in this country.

That's just sounds so unimaginably boring it's hard for me to accept that anyone would choose to live like that.

Great point about getting the vaccine:

Quote

"People ask me, ‘Why am I getting vaccinated if I just end up in the hospital anyway?’” Griffin said. "But I say, ‘You’ll end up leaving the hospital.’”

You are much more likely to have a mild case vaccinated than unvaxxed.

Overall the disease is expected to become less and less severe as more people are exposed to the coronavirus, whether they choose to vaccinate or catch COVID in the wild. It'll be like the flu, where people will continue to get sick and die each year, but not deaths in the millions worldwide like we saw over the past year and a half. It seems the hospital numbers are beginning to trend that way.

If only there was a way to gauge the sentiment of the citizens and determine how the majority of them feel. Maybe something like where they can choose which people they want to represent them and then tally up those choices and see who was the most desired representative. We should probably look into that at some point. Can't leave pressing questions like this unanswered.
